get to know us
We’re a small family that loves making big memories. We live in a small, country cottage nestled in the hills of Tennessee.
Our faith, our families, and our friends are the most important treasures that we have. We love sharing our experiences, our adventures, our challenges, and our happy times with others. It is our prayer that this site will encourage and inspire you in this wonderful journey of life.
Chad grew up in a large family in northern Indiana. At an early age he grew to love working on the farm, raising goats and chickens, and driving the tractor. He is probably the most diligent person you will ever meet, and he credits his dad for his strong work ethic. He spent many years working with youth and his humble and gentle spirit impacted countless lives. He graduated from a private College with an Associates in Youth Ministry. In 2013, he moved to Tennessee and married the love of his life, Erin Bates.
Over the years he has really enjoyed working with his hands, refinishing furniture, remodeling, and building projects. Chad started Paine Construction in 2017, and stays quite busy working full time, and making people’s dreams come to life. He is a proud father to 4 children, and every evening you can find him giving the kids wild piggy-back rides, breathtaking pushes on the swing , and telling the most exciting Bible stories. He is constantly investing into his family, and there is no job at home that he isn’t willing to do. He is a true example of a Christian and leads his family by serving, loving, and giving.
Erin Bates Paine
Erin finds fulfillment and joy from being a full time mother, homeschooling her two oldest, making dinners from scratch, and growing every flower she can find. She has a desire to minister to other women and encourage them to deepen their relationship with the Lord. You will often hear her saying, “Make your time with Jesus your priority each day, and make a choice to surround yourself with people and media that will challenge you spiritually. Life is too short to waste our time and eternity is too great.”
